Uh . . . runs in the family, I guess?

My adult daughter, who is also a writer and visual artist, sent me this. She knows me well. Apparently the weirdness and desire to kick at the daylight until it bleeds darkness is genetic.

It has given me several interesting ideas for short stories, so down the rabbit hole I go.

Creative non-fiction


I don’t think I really grok creative non-fiction.  Having read this explanation of creative non-fiction, I  know the basics. It’s the use of literary devices and techniques to tell a factual story. Fair enough. But I still think I don’t actually “get” it. Maybe it’s because I have a bias against memoirs, and often creative non-fiction takes that form?
